Lucy's mum thinks there is something wrong when Lucy sleeps for days at a time. She is so caught up with finding a 'cure' she doesn't see the real problem. Lucy is bullied at school and is thinking of ending her life.
When the bully goes too far and Lucy ends up in a coma, only Will can reach her. But how do you live when the only person who can save you doesn't exist? (Back cover)
